Whether you just built a Windows Server 2008 Test system or your using Windows Server 2008 as a desktop (like me), Turning off or Disabling the IE Enhanced Security Configuration (also known as IE ESC) is one of the first things I always do.
The steps are simple. If any questions arise, please feel free to start a new Topic in the Free Groovy Support Forum or leave a comment here.
1. Close all instances of Internet Explorer. Open Server Manager and Click Configure IE ESC
2. Under Administrators, Click Off Radio Button and Click OK
Note: In most cases/uses, there is no need to turn off IE ESC for Users, however, if you plan to use the server for Terminal Services or a shared desktop OS, etc… Select the Off Radio Button under Users as well.
All done! Very straightforward and groovy eh? Although the process is a bit different from previous Microsoft OSs, once you know where it’s hiding, it’s simple.
